The Real Housewives of Orange County cast has come under fire for their comments and behaviors during the coronavirus pandemic. Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Kelly Dodd all hung out in close proximity for a selfie, which sparked outrage among the fans. And David Beador’s fiancée and mother of his future child Lesley Cook shaded Shannon for this gathering. And, let’s not forget the many times that Kelly has made ignorant comments about coronavirus.
Previously demoted and eventually fired Housewife Vicki Gunvalson slammed the California governor for refusing to open up nail salons when she wanted to get a manicure. At the very beginning of the stay-at-home orders, Tamra Judge caught flack for keeping her gym open. And, most recently, the cast traveled to film a trip, which also incited criticism. And now, Shannon has revealed that she and all three of her daughters have tested positive for the coronavirus. Presumably, Shannon was not on the Real Housewives of Orange County cast trip.
Ok, what is going on with the Real Housewives of Orange County? It seems like they just cannot keep out of the media with negative press. I know they say all press is good press but in this case, I would have to disagree.
The show has already experienced a major shakeup before the season even started filming with the
firing exit of OG’s Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge. And Vicki has landed herself in hot water with her comments on coronavirus. So has Tamra, thanks to pictures she posted of her out with friends, no masks in sight. Which brings us to the current cast member, Kelly Dodd. Where do I even start? Kelly has been vocal about her constant travel, along with her insensitive comments about the virus. At this point, Kelly should do us all a favor and delete her social media. Honestly, the only person I’m here for with this cast is newbie Braunwyn Windham-Burke. I know people have conflicting feelings on her first season but hey, at least she’s not out there sharing inconsiderate memes about COVID.
Technically speaking, Emily Simpson joined Real Housewives of Orange County as a “friend” of Tamra Judge. However, they’ve been anything but friends, well, from what we have seen, anyway. These two just don’t get along, but not in a particularly entertaining sort of way.
Now that Tamra is done with the Real Housewife life (for now, anyway). She’s spending her days doing Zoom interview after Zoom interview, sharing some new info and doing what she does best: talking shit.
While Kelly Dodd had a shaky start on Real Housewives of Orange County, she provided fans with plenty of moments that motivated us to root for her. However, it’s just tough to do that lately with all of her coronavirus-related commentary. She said that coronavirus is God’s way of thinning the herd. She also “joked” that people are going to die anyway. And then there was that gathering with her RHOC co-stars Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson, and Braunwyn Windham-Burke. They wore face masks, one that ironically said “6 feet apart.” However, they got in such close proximity to each other for some selfies. They did not seem to be taking the shelter in place order seriously. At all.
Additionally, Kelly has been traveling back and forth from California to New York City, where her fiance Rick Leventhal lives. As an outsider, it’s hard not to have opinions about Kelly’s comments and behavior in relation to the coronavirus. Now, she has even more to say.
Some of the Real Housewives of Orange County cast members caused some controversy when they posted photos hanging out during the coronavirus pandemic in the midst of a stay-at-home order in California. Yes, they wore face masks, covering their mouths and noses. Yes, they seemingly had less than ten people with them. But, nevertheless, a lot of people were outraged when they reunited and took a selfie, mere inches from each other’s faces.
This was probably the one time Gina Kirschenheiter was actually happy to be excluded. Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd, Braunwyn Windham-Burke, and Emily Simpson were present for the coronavirus gathering. Even
recently fired Real Housewives of Orange County alum Tamra Judge commented with a face palm emoji. She’s not the only one throwing some shade though.
Bitter, party of two. Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge have been talking a lot of trash since they
got fired “left” Real Housewives of Orange County. I can’t tell if they’re just truly slamming the door behind them or if they’re just trying to ignite a strong enough feud with the actual cast members that they’ll get asked back on the show. Most likely, it’s the second one.
Vicki never liked Braunwyn Windham-Burke. However, Tamra didn’t mind making out with her. Now, Tamra is dissing her supposed “friend” with some encouragement from her
ally BFF Vicki. They also took some cheap shots at Emily Simpson, because why not hate on the well-spoken lawyer who actually seems like a nice person?
Grab your oranges because The Real Housewives of Orange County are in some seriously hot water. On Monday (May 4), Kelly Dodd took to social media to share a picture of herself hanging out with Shannon Beador, Emily Simpson and Braunwyn Windham-Burke…in the middle of the global coronavirus pandemic.
Needless to say, fans didn’t take to0 kindly to the RHOC stars utter disregard for social distancing directives in a time when most everyone around the country is doing their best to stay home for the sake of public health, and outrage spread faster than you can scream “I have never been with multiple partners in my life!”
How does that old adage go? “You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.” What about “absence makes the heart grow fonder”? But, what about the people that never left? Tamra Judge got the boot from Real Housewives of Orange County ahead of filming for Season 15.
Instead of taking some time to regroup and figure out a new normal away from the spotlight, she’s had a lot to say, especially about RHOC. Recently, she shared some casting opinions. And, yes, of course, she thinks she was a part of the show’s “perfect cast.” No one is surprised by that, but it may be a little bit shocking to find out who else she named.
